Manufacturing: Challenges and Trends

Posted on: 25/11/2022

The manufacturing industry is crucial to the strength of our economy and has rapidly developed in recent decades. Innovative technology has influenced every stage of the manufacturing process with digital transformation playing a key role in the administration of organisations. However, the utilisation of innovative technology and the digital evolution are not the only trends the industry is currently facing.

The environmental agenda and the call for the reduction of carbon emissions is having an influential effect on the sector as manufacturing organisations are adopting green approaches. There are also significant challenges facing businesses in the industry as external events such as the pandemic and Brexit have caused unprecedented issues. 

The trends and challenges associated with modern manufacturing are the focus of Executive TV’s latest special programme: Manufacturing: Challenges and Trends”with expert analysis from three organisations thriving in the UK and international sectors.
